Up in the Main House & Other Stories by Nadeem Zaman

Literary Fiction and Creative Nonfiction

Nadeem Zaman’s collection of eight stories set in contemporary Dhaka explore the inner lives of the people who have spent decades working for the same family, in the same house. The daily itineraries must run like clockwork for the rich and well-off who have their own problems, but in Nadeem's stories they appear thin and forever insecure, a byproduct of the real lives being lived around them. "Modern-day Dhaka and its residents are generously represented in this powerful collection. Meticulously constructed in both language and emotion, Zaman’s stories sneak up on the reader and consistently deliver." Publishers Weekly. $9.49 on Amazon / Barnes & Noble
